What's Up Wednesday, February 22, 2023 #56

Ken Tuley ·

This week on What's Up Wednesday, an update on the work being done to prepare the 2023 product line and a look ahead to March and some specials deals.

If you're keeping track there's just 226 days until the 51st Balloon Fiesta and while it may seem like product is rolling out slowly, it's not for lack of behind the scenes work. As you probably know, most of the merchandise available on Balloon Fiesta Stuff is custom designed and created for us and ultimately - you! Many items are dated or feature the year's theme. That means brand new designs every year. So far, there are 3 keychains, 3 magnets and 3 ornaments, already designed and going thru the final prep before they hit the production line. About a dozen pins of the nearly 100 we will produce are approaching final approval stage with many more already moving thru the concept stage. A mouse pad design is also in the final approval phase. 

On the sportswear side of the shop, with the approval of the one of the 2023 event logo designs, work is starting to select which clothing items will sport that logo, or some variation of it.

And that is just the product we are creating. We continue to search out other balloon related merchandise and are happy to tell you we'll be releasing some cool, new items next month. 

Speaking of next month, which starts next week, make sure you watch for the next issue of What's Up Wednesday, as we'll be announcing a special offer good for the month of March. Just make sure you have your lucky stone, star, charm or other good luck item handy when you come shopping in March.

See you next week, and Thanks for your support of Balloon Fiesta and Balloon Fiesta Stuff.
